FC United’s FA Youth Cup Preliminary Round tie away at Southport on Wednesday 9 September 2015 has been switched to a home tie and will now take place at Broadhurst Park on 9 September with a 7.45pm kick off.
The match, which will take place on the main pitch at the ground, has been switched following a request from Southport. They are having floodlight work undertaken on their Haig Avenue ground which won’t be completed in time for them to host the match.
This is only the second time that the youth team has competed in the FA Youth Cup and this match will be our first ever home tie in the competition, which was won last year by Chelsea after a 5-2 aggregate win over Manchester City.
The match offers a great chance to see the progress of the FC United Youth team and manager Rhodri Giggs is keen for FC supporters to turn up in numbers to support his side. “The FA Youth Cup is the premier cup competition for youth teams and we’re really looking forward to taking part this year, even more so now that our opening match will be played in front of our own supporters on the Broadhurst Park pitch. It’s a great opportunity for the club’s young players and I hope that as many of our supporters as possible get down to the ground on Wednesday night to support the team.???
